Course Description

The notion of managers coaching their employees is now well-entrenched in best business practices. As leaders, we know we need to engage in coach-like conversations to help our teams and direct reports achieve both personal and professional goals. Coaching skills, however, are different from mentorship, supportive management, and simple feedback. They look very different from other conversations and for leaders, are situational by nature. This web seminar will explore the various competencies required to develop coaching skills to help lead from a place of influence rather than top-down authority. Participants will learn about active listening and inquiry-based advocacy, appropriate coaching moments, and will be provided a tool to help navigate these generative conversations in the workplace.
